Re: [DML] kevlar wrapped header bottle


The P.O of my car (thank you, Harold) used a pair x-large hose clamps 
around the outside of the coolant bottle.  They held up for over 100,000 
miles in the Texas heat.  I only replaced the bottle because the plastic 
was starting to show spider-cracks everywhere, and I was worried more 
about it bursting than splitting in half.

You should have seen that bottle, though...the plastic had swollen around 
the clamps.  It looked like a balloon with a string tied around it.  With 
fiberglass, you could probably make a new header bottle with sufficient 
strength...or just buy a new tank.
